The proposed addition at the Pierre Hotel is a considerable improvement over the existing, using more appropriate materials while staying within the same footprint. Furthermore, the addition is only slightly visible from very limited view corridors. The Preservation Committee at FRIENDS recommends Commission approval of this application.
